The story of a deadly assassin out for vengeance stars Michael Keaton, Maggie Q, Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Patrick.
In the film, rescued as a child and raised by legendary assassin Moody (Jackson), Anna (Maggie Q) was trained to become the world’s most skilled contract killer. When Anna learns that Moody has been brutally killed, she vows revenge. On the murderer’s trail, Anna is entangled with an enigmatic hit man (Keaton) and, as their confrontation turns deadly, the loose ends of a life spent killing weave themselves ever tighter in this action-thriller from the director of Casino Royale.
The Protégé home entertainment release also includes two behind-the-scenes featurettes, audio commentary from director Martin Campbell, and a previously unreleased deleted scene. Hosted by Campbell, “Scars of the Past: Making The Protégé” offers an inside look at the making of the film. “Anna vs. Rembrandt” focuses on the chemistry between Maggie Q’s and Keaton’s characters.
